Hello All,

I have two computers with the same system name - System2 is on the
local subnet as System1 and System3 is on the company domain as
System1. System3 is not supposed to be on the company domain with the
same name and we cannot trace where it is located to get rid of it.

When I try to connect with the 'System Name' from System1 connected to
System2 on the local subnet and System3 on the company domain, the
computer resolves the IP Address to System3 and not System2 which is
on the same subnet!!

How can I configure the System1 to find System2 before looking for
systems on the company domain? Also, how can I trace where System3 is
located - I get Request timed out when I try pinging it?

Thanks for your help in advance.
